The One Love Campaign July 2008
SAN FRANCISCO, CA (July 15, 2008) The One Love Campaign launches in San Francisco, the City of Pride, in celebration of the recent California Same Sex Marriage ruling. This movement reinforces the city’s status as the home for spirited service, prosperity and transformation, and honors the ruling as a symbol of unification and inspiration for all couples that wish to publicly claim
their devotion. The Campaign will showcase select high profile Bay Area businesses who offer a full range of luxury services for relationships, weddings, events and honeymoons for all couples tying the knot. Since the May 2008 California same sex marriage ruling, gay couples have been flocking to the “City by the Bay” to say their vows as San Francisco maintains it’s foundation in activism for gay rights. In support of The One Love Campaign, all select profiled businesses will donate a percentage of their One Love sales to designated San Francisco LGBT organizations.
The One Love Campaign, established by Ali Berlin & Diana Bianchini, was born out of their passion for connection and justice that transcends opinion, sexual orientation and other discriminatory affiliations. The mission of the One Love Campaign is to illuminate and activate the massive power of the human heart.
Anchored in the possibility of unconditional love, this grass roots effort provides an opportunity for a new world to emerge from the arising of conscious marriages, community awareness and universal vows of integrity. One Love’s purpose will potentially redefine the meaning of marriage for all couples, gay or straight, as a necessary step in resurrecting family values, compassion and a reverence for humanity. Berlin & Bianchini believe this launch is the beginning of a cultural movement, and expect to draw national awareness and garner significant interest from other progressive organizations with rapid expansion as the good word spreads. The website, www.theonelovecampaign.comwill serve as a beacon of information and a resource for all different types of relationship & wedding services in a network that recognizes all marriages as One Love.
The Williams Institute on Sexual Orientation Law and Public Policy at the UCLA School of Law estimates that gay weddings could add $250 million to the State of California’s economy over the next 6 months. This means an abundant and positive impact on the San Francisco economy due to this ruling, and One Love is committed to stimulating both community involvement and fiscal possibilities.
With the trailblazing Mayor Gavin Newsom at the helm, San Francisco continues to make history in taking a stand for equal rights. “In 2004, San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom gained national attention when he issued a directive to the San Francisco city-county clerk to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples. The unexpected move brought national attention to the issues of gay marriage and gay rights, solidifying political support for Newsom in San Francisco and in the gay community, and causing several other states to change their laws concerning marriage and gay rights. Four years later, the California Supreme Court struck down the ban on same sex marriage after the City and County of San Francisco along with several other plaintiffs sued California over the ban.” (Wikipedia.com) Shortly after the California Supreme Court issued it’s new ruling on May 15, 2008, Mayor Newsom told National Public Radio “It’s about human dignity, it’s about civil rights and it’s about time in California!”
